Don't you just want to crawl inside this beautiful white flower?
This fall the seed pods will have bright red seeds emerging from the center.
In the backyard garden the Hydrangeas are starting to bloom. I brought one from Virginia with me, 'Nikko Blue', and purchases two Endless Summer varieties after we got here. Knock on wood, the deer haven't discovered these.
The area along the roadside in our housing area is pretty wild. There are a lot of grasses sprouting up and putting forth their seed heads. They are all very different and I do not know one from the other. I was trying to get some good photos of each so I could then start some research on which grass is which.
As I moved off the road into the grasses I had company/help. Newton wanted to see what I was looking at and with the added frustration of the wind, it was hard to take closeup photos of the seedheads.
Needing some of my butterfly experts out there. This picture is not upside down, the butterfly is. He and about a dozen of his friends were hanging out on my mailbox post. While in a resting state their wings were up, you would not believe how many photos I took to get ONE with its wings open.
More wildlife--- as we were coming back from town last week, in the middle of the day, we spotted a mama deer nursing her fawn. Camera in hand, I tried to get a photo of both of them. Mama took off into the tree line, leaving this very close to newborn out in the open. I quickly took a couple pictures----this is zoomed to the max and then cropped, we were a good distance away. I have mixed emotions on seeing this baby. The emotions range from --oh how cute!- to- oh no! deer! As soon as we got home (just a couple lots down) I got the deer repellent out and protected my newly planted rose bushes.
Yesterday we were on our way out and saw one of the turtles we usually see in the water, up at the top of a neighbor's driveway. Hope it found its way back to the water. It was a pretty big turtle, kind of fun to see as they usually dive into the water as soon as we come near.
